The City engages with residents to gather ideas and feedback as it drafts the budget each year for City Council’s consideration.

The City consults with the community throughout the budget process – at the beginning when setting the guidelines for the drafting of the budget, when the draft budget is released, and before Council considers approving the budget.

Each year, Council considers the needs of the community, expected service levels, and legislated responsibilities as it sets the operating and capital budgets for the City of Peterborough.

As part of the community engagement, Council typically holds casual drop-in-style meetings in each of the five wards of the City to give residents an opportunity to talk to Council members and City staff about the City's budget process ahead of setting the guidelines for drafting the next year's budget. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the drop-in meetings are being held online and by phone.

A brief survey was also provided as another way for residents and businesses to provide input into the creation of the guidelines for the 2023 Budget. A summary of the input provided through the brief survey is included in the 2023 Budget Survey: What We Heard document. The budget guidelines provide direction on the creation of the Draft 2023 Budget.

The Draft 2023 Budget documents were publicly posted and presented to Council in December 2022.

We'll continue to update this project page throughout the 2023 Budget process. Check back for updates and details on other opportunities to engage throughout the budget process.
